Breast Augmentation Treatment in Iran

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation also mammoplasty is a surgical procedure to increase breast size. During mammoplasty, a breast implant is placed under the breast tissue or chest muscles.

Why is done?

The following are reasons for breast augmentation:

  • Enhance your breast appearance for those who concerned that one is smaller than the other one.
  • Adjust for size reduction of the breast after pregnancy.
  • Breast reconstruction after breast surgery for cancer or other conditions.
  • Improve self-confidence and self-image.

Pre-assessment

Consult with a plastic surgeon about your preference for size, feel and overall appearance of your breast. He may prescribe specific types of implant, e.g. smooth/textured, round or tear-drop shaped saline or silicone, as well as options for surgical techniques. There are some important considerations to bear in mind;

  • Breast implant won’t prevent the patient breast from sagging.
  • The procedure won’t guarantee to last a lifetime.
  • Mammogram might be complicated and may need routine MRI scans.
  • The breast implant may hamper breastfeeding.
  • Insurance might not cover the implant.
  • Additional surgeries after breast implant removal.

Risks

Some of the risks that may arise with breast augmentation:

  • Capsule contracture which is a hardening of the breast with distortion and sometimes pain and may require surgical incision of the fibrous scar capsule around the implant.
  • Breast pain.
  • Warmth and redness in the breast, fever may be an indication.
  • Change in nipple and breast sensation.
  • Implant leakage deflation.
  • Asymmetry-sliding out of position appearing too high or low.
  • Autoimmune diseases.

After procedure

  • Breast soreness and swelling which will resolve a few weeks.
  • Possible bruising.
  • Expect gradual fading of the scar.
  • While healing may be advised to wear a compression bandage or sports bra for extra support of the breast implant.
  • Painkillers might be prescribed to manage the pain.
  • Avoid strenuous activities for a few weeks.
